You’ve spent lots of time and care fabricating your steel sculpture, so ensure it lasts a lifetime with hot dip galvanizing. Protect sculptures against corrosion and preserve the beauty of your work.
While galvanizing is often thought to be only for industrial steel, it is ideal to use for sculptures to extend their lifespan. Galvanizing protects sculptures against corrosion, including corrosion from bad weather. Your sculpture is protected, even if it’s displayed outside.
Galvanizing isn’t just for corrosion resistance. Hot dip galvanizing provide a smooth, shiny finish for steel. If you want your steel sculpture looking like new, then hot dip galvanizing is an ideal choice.
The development partners for Marischal Square, a mixed-use district in Aberdeen, commissioned Andy Scott to make a centrepiece for the buildings.
Inspired by the leopard symbols on Aberdeen City Council’s historic coat of arms, the sculpture features a “Poised” leopard in the centre of the district, bringing the culture of Aberdeen into the heart of the square.
When you want to bring your sculpture to life with colour, powder coating is the best paint alternative for sculptures – chip-resistant for an extended lifespan. Powder coating is also more weather-proof than paint; your sculptures can be displayed outside without worrying about corrosion from rain.
To celebrate the engineering and success of the Spitfire used in WWII, and to commemorate RAF airmen and a grandfather’s legacy, Lutman Aero Works began to fabricate custom Lutman Spitfire MK XII’s as sculptural steel commissions. Joseph Ash Galvanizing was proud to galvanize one of these commissions.
Hot dip galvanizing increases protection against corrosion, even from the weather. Safely display your work of art outside in the knowledge it won’t rust in the rain for many years to come.

Young V&A museum’s grand opening day was fast approaching, and fabricator Factory Settings needed a reliable galvanizing company that offered a fast turnaround time to galvanize letter frames in the shape of V&A’s logo.
Galvanizing increased the steel’s durability and gave it a shiny, clean finish, as well as increasing its corrosion-resistance to protect it come rain or shine.
